FAA Approves Supertall Height For One Brickell City Centre At 1,049 Feet

The Federal Aviation Administration has given the green light to build the supertall tower known as One Brickell City Centre.

According to a July 15 letter to developer Swire Properties, the tower is permitted to rise 1,040 feet above ground, or 1,049 feet above sea level.

Related Companies, controlled by Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, is partnering with Swire on the project.

The FAA had previously approved the 1,049-foot height in both 2015 and 2018. However, the 2018 approval order was scheduled to expire in June 2022 if construction was not yet underway.

The 1,049 foot height is the tallest ever approved in Miami (there are a number of others also approved for the same height).

One Brickell City Centre will have 1.6 million square feet of Class A office space, in a tower designed by Arquitectonica.

Construction will begin in 2023.

Fantastic. Towers like this really transform Miami, attracting companies, generating business, income, employment and taxes.

Yes. I’ll be going crazy if two or three of these start going up together. Okan, WA, and this one.

Crazy thing Apple and Amazon canceled their new NewYork office leases. Think a relocation to Miami might be in the works

Apple and Amazon have a presence in Texas and I don’t see it being turned into California 2.0 anytime soon, so long as another bamboozling bill like the 1986 amnesty for illegals isn’t pushed.

Yes! Bring on the unfriendly virtue signaling NIMBYS that have led to more tent cities, crime, riots, traffic, unaffordability, and do nothing police and DAs in every other big city! I can’t wait!

“Do nothing police” Um, are you new here? Our police force is the laughing stock of the developed world.

“Doing nothing” would be an improvement over being Carollo’s attack dogs.

Um, if were a rightie, the last things I would complain about or mention is “crime, riot, and do nothing police.” Not after what the world saw on January 6, 2021.

The more the merrier! As someone who has lived here for more than a decade, I can say that since the great migration, Miami has become a much better city. Keep on coming, New Yorkers!

I thought these tall office towers wouldn’t be popular after 9/11. I was wrong.
